NEW YORK, Sept. 26 (UPI) -- A second contestant on Bravo's "Project Runway" might be kicked off the TV show for violating the rule against getting outside help for his creations.

Jeffrey Sebelia, 36, known to viewers for his throat tattoo, was accused by fellow contestant Laura Bennett of seeking help for basic sewing, the New York Post reported Tuesday.

"We took the accusations very seriously, and we did a very thorough investigation," Bravo's Tim Gunn said.

A spokeswoman for the show said the results of the investigation would be revealed on Wednesday night's episode of the reality competition among up-and-coming fashion designers.

Contestant Keith Michael was ejected from the show last month for a rules violation.
